1. Who Is Lady Gaga's Boyfriend, Michael Polansky?

He’s a businessman who currently lives in San Francisco, California. After graduating from Harvard with a bachelor’s degree in computer science (seriously), Polansky went on to become CEO of The Parker Group, a holding company that houses his charities and businesses.

According to his LinkedIn page, he’s also a co-founder and board member of the Parker Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy, which is owned by Facebook co-founder Sean Parker (portrayed by Justin Timberlake in The Social Network). The company’s goal is to break down barriers to cancer research.

2. How Did Gaga And Polansky Meet?

We don’t know exactly when or where they met, though many believe the meet-cute occurred a few months after Gaga broke off her engagement with talent agent Christian Carino in February 2019. The “Shallow” singer likely ran into Polansky “through events Parker has hosted at his LA mansion,” as Page Six reports.

3. Are They Instagram Official?

Oh, yes. The pair attended the 2020 Super Bowl at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida, where they were spotted showing PDA. Shortly after the game, Gaga made their relationship Instagram official when she posted a lovey-dovey photo on social media.

“We had so much fun in Miami,” she wrote. “Love to all my little monsters and fans, you’re the best!”

4. How Serious Is The Relationship?

It’s been two years sine they went IG official, and one look at Gaga's IG page will tell you that things are getting pretty serious.

The couple have made a few public appearances, including the inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris. And on social media, they documented quite a few of their dates and special occasions, from the launch party for Gaga's sixth album, Chromatica, to their charity work together.

While speaking on Morning Joe about her mental health initiative in 2020, she said, "With Born This Way Foundation, my mother, Cynthia Germanotta, and our co-founder Maya [Enista Smith], who I love so very much—they are working with my, the love of my life on something for mental health."

5. Is It True That Polansky's Ex Wrote A Story About Him?

Yep, it's 100 percent true. Lindsay Crouse, a senior staff editor at The New York Times, published a piece and revealed that she used to date Polansky in college before he moved on to the Grammy winner.

She mentioned that she has no hard feelings toward the pair, and she wrote, "Lady Gaga is amazing. Comparing yourself with her is incredibly motivational, and I recommend you try it, regardless of how you relate to who's dating her."

6. Are They Planning To Get Married?

Although it's clear that they're smitten with each other, it looks like they're in no rush to get to the altar.

A close source told Entertainment Tonight, "They haven't been talking about engagement or marriage yet. Friends don't think that will happen any time soon. She's very busy with her career and is not thinking about long term plans right now, but she loves having him by her side."
